    If you are looking at who he is now, don't you have to look at his complete work to date, not just a small sample size of this year's stats?

    He's proven he's not Tulo to date, becuase Tulo has done it over many, many years.

    Boxberger nailed down his first major league save earlier tonight, having to face Cargo, Tulo, and Cuddyer to do so in a 1-run game.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    After another disastrous outing, it seems Aaron Harang's role as a starting pitcher in the MLB is hanging on by a string.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    The Padres general manager said during a radio interview today that Yonder Alonso could miss a month with a fractured right hand
    "Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."

    Drew Stubbs: More valuable than Adam Dunn. Who'd have thunk it.

    Chris Denorfia with a higher WAR than Edwin and Chris Dickerson and Drew Stubbs with a higher WAR than Travis Wood.

    Example A of why I can't get behind WAR.

    EDIT: Oh, that was just hitting WAR. Not pitching lol. Edwin/Denorfia still applies.

    Yeah, I need to sort by something else than WAR and maybe exclude hitting for pitchers, although the Leake-Wood rivalry is interesting that way.

    Volquez and Roenicke have just about played themselves out of MLB, huh?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Not if you are a big believer of xFIP, as Volquez's is slightly better than Wood's.

    Look at Volquez's K/BB ratio. Yikes. Travis Wood's .214 BABIP is totally sustainable.

    Because it is counterintuitive? Isn't that sort of the point?

    to this:
    It’s Aaron Harang’s world and we are all just living in it
    So on the season, Harang, who is now 3-6 with a 5.60 earned run average after his stellar outing, has two complete game shutouts, while Felix Hernandez and Hisashi Iwakuma – the Mariners’ two best pitchers – have none.

    Baseball is a very odd game
